LeftStreamed: Palestine: A Political Travelogue
November 1, 2015
Palestine has long been central to colonial and anti-colonial imaginaries – of the Ottoman and British empires, and Zionist and Arab nationalisms, before becoming a key site of inspiration for left and anti-colonial internationalism and recent scholarship on decolonial resistance. The International Conference of Critical Geography in Ramallah, Palestine, in July 2015, extended this trajectory of anti-colonial internationalism by enriching our historical and political understandings of Palestine.
What's New: A People's Art History of the United States
by Adam Turl | October 31, 2015
When I met Howard Zinn in 2003 he was already the series editor for the “People's History” series through The New Press. After talking about radical art with Professor Zinn for a day he invited me to submit a proposal for A People's Art History of the U.S. He promised to pass it on to Marc Favreau at The New Press if he liked the direction of the proposal. Both he and Marc eventually gave the go ahead which set me on the course of a book contract and eight years of research and writing.

What's New: Put the backbone back in the UAW
by Gregg Shotwell | October 30, 2015
Last month, workers at Chrysler--a part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA)--rejected a tentative contract agreement recommended by the United Auto Workers (UAW) International leadership by a wide margin of 65 per cent. Among the issues at stake was the continuation of a two-tier wage arrangement and dissatisfaction with the UAW leadership after it lied to union members about some of the terms of the previous contract. A threatened strike was called off just before the October 7 deadline.

|: Toronto People's Assembly on Climate Justice 2015|
As part of a global call for actions on climate justice, the Toronto People's Assembly on Climate Justice 2015 will bring together activists, organizations, people from all walks of life for an open forum to discuss community-based responses to the climate crisis. This event is also a direct response to the 2015 United Nations Conference of the Parties talks on the climate in Paris (November 30th to December 11th), and seeks to find alternatives outside of government and industry initiatives, which have served the interests of the rich, rather than people today or our collective future.
Several People’s Assemblies on the Climate were held in Toronto between 2010 and 2012. This 2015 gathering seeks to re-catalyze, revitalize, and revision strength for our collective fight for climate justice.
